    How to fix your Windows Application when it doesn?t work:

      (1) Stop and start the program
       (2) Log in and log out again
        (3) Reboot the machine
         (4) Reinstall the application again
          (5) Reinstall the operating system
           (6) Dance naked around the machine, waving a rubber chicken
            (7) "Take your machine back for servicing"

To be less sarcastic, I failed to find an article which speaks of optician
stores where GNU/Linux is now used exclusively. I saw it in the news some
months back. Anyway, here's something related which I came across in my
unsuccessful search:
